(Newser) – The third bull run of the San Fermin festival saw three runners gored, two Brits and one American. All were gored in the leg and none was seriously injured, the AP reports. Thousands ran ahead of the six bulls in Pamplona today for about three minutes over the 2,785-foot course, and one bull broke free of the pack to gore the three victims shortly before reaching the bullring. The victims huddled beside a fence as the bull charged them; cowherds with sticks eventually managed to get it away. During this year's first bull run, a man was dragged 30 yards by his neckerchief.
